ABOUT

I have been a bassist for 40 years and have played in both original and cover bands in Delaware and Philadelphia. My bands have opened up for such national and regional acts as: AWB, The Roots, Gnarls Barkley, Esperanza Spaulding, George Lynch(Lynch Mob, Dokken), Adler's Appetite(GnR original drummer Steven Adler), Howe II(Greg Howe), Jaguar Wright,Third World, Boy Sets Fire, PM Dawn, Mike Pinto, Matisyahu, Ky-Mani Marlley, Mykal Rose (Black Uhuru) and Dumpstaphunk. Recently, I've enjoyed playing in both cover and original acoustic duos, trios and quartets. In 2013, 2016 and 2017, I was nominated for 93.7 WSTW's Hometown Heroes' "Best Bassist" award, finally winning in 2019. Over the years I have worked in the industry as a backline technician/roadie for members of P-Funk and Schooly-D. I'm available for spot dates as well as studio work.
